    A major attraction for families to Johnson County, Kansas are the strong school systems. There are six districts: Blue Valley School District, De Soto School District, Gardner Edgerton School District, Olathe School District, Shawnee Mission School District, and Spring Hill School District. All of them are highly rated! Additionally, Olathe is home to the Kansas School for the Deaf. The Kansas State School for the Blind is in Wyandotte County. Most of these districts are continuing to expand as Johnson County grows larger towards the south and west. Some JoCo KS cities are in four school districts! For example, Overland Park is now served by: Blue Valley, Olathe, Shawnee Mission, and Spring Hill. Johnson County Community College is an absolute jewel and boasts the county's only professional performing arts center. Nearly everyone in my family graduated from JCCC first before continuing on to higher education. I've graduated twice from JCCC and still attend classes from time to time; there is such a wide variety of continuing education and greatly discounted credit classes for seniors. The greater Kansas City area has a wide variety of schools, but JoCo KS schools can't be beat!

    I've been here a couple times. I thought the all electric house was a very interesting snapshot of that period in Johnson County, reflecting the values placed on modernity. I thought it was an interesting development of a former bowling alley into a museum. The old King Louie building had some distinctive architectural features, so I'm glad it wasn't torn down. The museum is also a good place to hold small events. I spoke at an event last fall there and thought the facilities were good.
